How much is mobile home insurance?

Trusted Choice, an online platform for independent insurance agents, estimates that mobile home policies vary between $700 and $1,500 per year. However, the cost of manufactured home insurance can vary widely by ZIP code.

Factors that affect the cost of mobile or manufactured home insurance

Several factors may affect your manufactured/mobile home insurance rate. Some are out of your control, while others can be adjusted. They include:

  • Age and condition of your home
  • Your location – some areas are more prone to theft, fires, hail or wind damage
  • Your coverage limits
  • The amount of your deductible (higher deductibles mean lower rates.)
  • Whether you qualify for discounts such as multiple policies, military service or having a home security system
  • Your claims history

Home insurance FAQs

Are there manufactured home insurance endorsements?

You can add optional endorsements to an HO-7 mobile home insurance policy to increase your home's protection level. Some of the most common are:

  • Water and sewer backup. Covers water damage caused by a broken sump pump or backed-up drain.
  • Scheduled personal property. Provides additional coverage for expensive items such as appraised jewelry, collectibles or antiques.
  • Replacement cost. Ensures that your items are replaced at the current price to replace them, rather than the depreciated value.

How can I buy mobile home insurance?

You can buy mobile home insurance from an agent or directly from an insurance company. A good place to start is with your current insurance company, as you might qualify for a bundling discount. But make sure to compare quotes from multiple companies. Once you choose a policy, submit your application and pay your premium to get started.

If your mobile home was manufactured before 1976 you should buy older mobile home insurance.

Can you get flood insurance on a mobile home?

Yes. You will have to buy a separate policy for flood coverage, usually through the National Flood Insurance Program.
